There are two things that I am really really passionate about in life; children and animals. I know this blog is geared toward products and information regarding children normally, but I thought it was time to branch out once and do a review for a pet product.
I worked as a veterinary assistant for several years, and in that time I used my fair share of nail trimmers on dogs. You know, when you when you do a job over and over, you find a favorite tool that you grab every time you need to do that job. For me, I had a favorite pair of orange handled nail trimmers that I loved. When I left the veterinary world, I wished I could take that one pair of nail trimmers with me.
Since then, I have been looking for a pair of nail clippers that were similar, but I did not want to pay more than $10. Well, I have found them a pair of pet nail clippers that rival the orange handled ones. I was recently allowed to review Professional Pet Nail Clippers By Epica, and I love them. The pet nail clippers are precise and SHARP. Making great cuts every time. The nail clippers have a guard on them, so that you do not trim too much of the dog's nail (I have removed that feature on other trimmers, but Epica really got it right). I found that the handle was very comfortable, and did not hurt my hand while I trimmed my dog's nails. Another feature that I loved, was that the pet nail trimmers have a metal piece that locks them for safety when not in use. Other nail clippers I have used in the past, this part has been plastic.
The dog nail trimmers are great, but I did have one tiny issue with them. When you squeeze the clippers to cut the nail, there is a pop sound, and the blades kind of catch on each other at the top. You can squeeze through it, and the clippers function wonderfully, but I would be a little concerned that it might wear the blades down quicker. I don't know if it was just the pair I received or if this happens with every pair.
All in all, this is a wonderful pair of nail trimmers for dogs. At $7.95 on Amazon, you can't go wrong with these professional pet nail clippers.
